($40) Wild nose combines a gamey quality with steely minerality. Tightly wound and very young, but its lemon custard and mineral flavors hint at the complexity to come. Finishes adamantly dry, firm and persistent. This really needs a couple years of patience.

The 2002 Chardonnay Martinelli Road Vineyard has a striking minerality with notes of gravel and hot rocks, a steely backbone, huge body, leesy flavors with good acidity, tremendous ripeness, and a singular terroir character. If California were making a Meursault-Perrieres, this might be an example of that style of site-specific wine.

Yeasty bread dough aromas lead to a rich, creamy-textured wine, with scents of anise, ripe fig, honeysuckle and spice. Broad and expansive, with a long, intricate aftertaste that echoes butterscotch.
